Add ability to set parameters for Kerberos Integrated Authentication to Connect to SQL Server

Currently B2BAC uses SQL Server Authentication to connect to SQL Server

It is Microsoft best practice to:

  • Require Windows Authentication for connections to SQL Server.

  • Use Kerberos authentication.

 

https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/sql/sql-server/install/security-considerations-for-a-sql-server-installation?view=sql-server-2017

There is nowhere to set the driver properties integratedSecurity or authenticationScheme in the configuraton file:

<MEIG-INSTALL>\Members\resources\SystemConfigurationDSLoader.properties
